It's been just a few days since my last bookspotting post, which wrapped-up my epic travel summer. I haven't had time to spot too many books since then, but I did count three books that were too far away for me to identify on my regular commute. I saw a young girl reading a graphic novel while waiting for the train with her mother. I spent an afternoon in a coffee shop where I noticed a young woman reading How Starbucks Saved My Life by Michael Gill.
Now that I'm getting settled in Hong Kong, it is time to announce my 100 FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY! I've had an incredible 30 weeks reviewing books, photographing walking tours, and spotting books around Hong Kong. In honor of you lovely people, who have consistently commented on and supported this blog, I am giving away a $15 Amazon.com gift certificate. This giveaway is open worldwide. Here are the rules: simply leave a comment telling one book that you have spotted someone reading in public and where you were. It's okay if you knew the person you saw reading. The giveaway will be open until September 12th, which is the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival in Hong Kong.
I hope you've noticed that along with this giveaway I am launching a blog redesign. This seriously cool header was designed by my wildly talented sister Lindsay. Thanks!
Why not follow me on twitter while you're here? I'd love to chat.
